A Few Tutor Qualifications
I have painted since I was a small child, and still am fascinated with the endless possibilities of applying color to a surface. As an art teacher I have worked in virtually every medium. I am equally at home with watercolor, oils or acrylic paints.
Most recently I work on oil paintings outside,"en plein aire," and I work on watercolors inside.
I enjoy painting a variety of subjects including abstract and non-objective pieces. I believe that having a complete understanding of the mechanics of color mixing frees the artist to express his or her experiences using a variety of techniques.

I have tutored other students in Reading and worked with students in elementary school and have had success in helping them improve their reading levels, become more motivated readers, and feel more confident about reading.
